Tracy Turkish Brooks became an instant Internet sensation last week when a steamy post that appeared on her Facebook wall went viral. The X-rated missive, followed by a message that made it appear that Brooks accidentally wrote the message in the wrong box on her page and couldn't get rid of it (punctuated by the requisite sad-face emoticon), went a little something like this:

"Thank you too, Micheal, I had a great time as well.I'm glad you enjoyed my OTHER pussy ;). I must admit, I haven't had sex in a while, so getting mounted by such a strong and powerful man was a pleasant surprise after so many long months of ...abstinence. I hope this message doesn't scare you off, I just wanted you to know what a wonderful time I had with you.You are permanently invited to 'the love cave between my legs'"
Getting tagged in a photo where you've got a mojito in one hand and a semi-clad inebriate in the other is one thing, but having your "love cave" posted on your wall is ... well... yikes. But Brooks told SF Weekly she was not the author of what is certain to be come the hot new synonym for "vagina" -- or any of the other lascivious comments that appeared on her Facebook page.

Brooks, who lives in Ventura County, told us that hackers took her account information from a Christian

dating Web site and posted it on a bulletin board site called 4chan. Then the hackers of the world went to town. In addition to posting the lewd info on her wall, which later inspired an entire Facebook group, Brooks says hackers also made her profile public and replaced her smiley blond profile picture with one of Satan.

Brooks found out that she had been hacked last Friday and immediately contacted the Palo Alto Facebook office. She had been locked out of the account and had the same password for her e-mail account, so she couldn't change any of her information. Brooks said that Facebook didn't remove her account until Sunday morning. In the meantime, she suffered plenty of embarrassment and says that there are at least six others like her who had their information stolen from the Christian dating Web site and blasted into the hack-o-sphere.

Luckily, Brooks said the hackers weren't able to access any important financial information. Embarrassment aside, she says the hack could have been a lot worse. "Only thing I can say is, lesson learned for me," she told SF Weekly. "Do not keep all of your passwords the same." Lesson learned indeed.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
